Rag Patchwork Jeans Pencil and Notebook Folder

Using up some of the denim jean scraps I've got - I made another of my Pencil and notebook folders for one of my daughter's friend's birthdays.

I've found these folders make great gifts for both boys and girls. You just have to find fabric to suit.

I like this denim one. It helped use up some of my smaller scraps..

The squares are patched together with wrong sides together so the seams are on the outside. I then clipped the seams and washed it all (inside a pillowcase to catch all the fluff).
The seams will fluff up even more and look better over time as the folder is used.

I really like the effect - and hopefully the birthday girl will like her present!


  1. This looks brilliant, I love the raggy edges on the patchwork!


    1. Thanks Alison! The birthday girl loved it!

  2. Jill, you have so many great ideas. This looks fantastic!

  3. Another beautiful project, where recycling and reuse have resulted in a fantastic gift. WOW I love it! Marisa.

    1. Thanks so much Marisa! Almost all my daughter's friends have these now! I'll have to switch to something different for kids gifts next year! :)


I love comments and try to respond to them all. Thanks for taking the time !
